    Menstrual Hygiene For Underprivileged Women

Story

Hello there!
My name is Isha Maini.
I'm a student in grade 10 and the founder of STEP, a social, educational initiative to broaden access to educational resources for low-income students regarding menstrual health and hygiene in a gender-sensitive and body-inclusive manner. Growing up, as I was exposed to the concept of menstrual health, I realized the extent to which menstruation is still a taboo in our society and manifests in the most subtle ways in our immediate surroundings. As a result of these taboos, many women and young girls lack the information and resources required to ensure safe and healthy periods every month, and girls living with economic hardship are in the most vulnerable category.
Just recently, STEP started a collaboration with Humari Pahchan NGO. One of their projects has greatly inspired me, and I have decided to lead it independently. The project's name is 'SUKHAD.' The aim of the project is to help underprivileged women spend their periods comfortably with proper means and information by providing them with menstrual resources. 
Providing sanitary pads, educating them on proper menstrual hygiene, and raising awareness that 'periods' and discussing them is not a taboo topic, but rather a normal method
स्वस्थय को है बचाना तो हर औरत को है पैड इस्तेमाल मे लाना  
We are also conducting distribution drives every week where 'Sukhad Kit' is distributed which includes pads, soap, paper envelopes for disposal, and other essential items.
हमारी पहचान बना रही है महिलाओ को सशक्त  
Project sukhad is the need of the hour and we all need to unite for the cause.
WE ARE PLANNING TO DISTRIBUTE AROUND 50K SUKHAD KITS TO UNDERPRIVILEGED WOMEN throughout the year. 
Per kit price: 
Sukhad kit for 1 woman = Rs. 1,400/- 
Sukhad kits for 5 women = Rs 7,000/- 
KIT INCLUDES 24 packets of the sanitary pad 6 packets of soap Disposable paper envelopes. I respectfully request that you all donate to this cause. Even a single penny makes a significant difference. I can tell the difference. The more you participate, the more I will be able to assist these ladies with their menstrual issues.
